(Bloomberg) -- Uber Technologies Inc. is allowing some drivers in California to set their own rates, an effort to bolster the company’s argument that they’re independent workers and not employees.The feature is being tested across some airport routes “to preserve flexible work” for California drivers, a spokesman said. It’s the company’s latest tweak in response to Assembly Bill 5, which went into effect Jan. 1 and seeks to reclassify gig-economy workers as employees, entitled to benefits like sick days, and not independent contractors. Earlier this month, Uber tweaked the driver app to end flat-surge pricing, remove penalties for rejecting trips and display how much drivers can make on each trip.Drivers at Santa Barbara, Sacramento and Palm Springs airports will be able to increase their fares in 10% increments, to as much as five times the normal rate starting Tuesday. Uber will refine the feature in the coming weeks and, depending on the test results, could deploy it more broadly in the months ahead, the person said. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported on the fare test.California’s new labor law could upend the multi-billion-dollar operations built by Uber and other companies by leveraging on-demand labor. Uber, Lyft Inc., DoorDash Inc. and Postmates Inc. are championing a California ballot initiative to repeal the law while guaranteeing a minimum pay of $21 an hour and granting some benefits to drivers.Uber and Lyft analysts have flagged the law as an existential threat to the companies’ business models, citing costs that could increase by as much as 30%.Lyft President John Zimmer declined to comment on whether his company would emulate Uber’s move to allow drivers to set their own prices. “What’s happening in California is a big opportunity to think about how to combine the benefits of this new type of work with benefits that workers deserve,” he said in an interview on Bloomberg Television. “So we’re navigating that.”(Updates with Lyft president’s quote in the last paragraph.)\--With assistance from Candy Cheng and Jason Kelly.To contact the reporter on this story: Lizette Chapman in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Mark Milian at email@example.com, Molly Schuetz, Robin AjelloFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

If funding for late-stage private companies dries up as investors opt to commit their dollars to companies with a clear path to profitability instead of costly growth, established public companies—such as (UBER) (ticker: UBER)—may benefit, according to Youssef Squali, analyst at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, wrote in Tuesday. With an expected dearth of funding for private companies, Uber has an opportunity to gain market share.
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak named Uber Technologies Inc. his top internet stock pick for 2020 on Tuesday, writing that the company is showing profit improvements in both its ride-hailing and Uber Eats businesses. The stock is up more than 4% Tuesday. "The two-player U.S. rideshare market continues to be more profit-focused and we expect the decline in available private funding for cash-burning competitors (post-WeWork) to make the non-U.S. markets more rational," he wrote. On the food delivery side, Nowak expects market consolidation in the U.S. and a more rational approach to the company's footprint overseas. Uber announced Tuesday that it had divested its India food-delivery business. Uber's shares have gained 20% over the past month, as the S&P 500 has risen 3.1%.
Lyft has been gradually taking share from Uber in the U.S., while China's Didi has been gaining ground in Brazil and Mexico.

Uber Technologies Inc. shares are up 1.7% in premarket trading Tuesday after the company disclosed that it had completed the sale of its India food delivery business to Zomato, a local player, for a 9.99% stake in the company and about $35 million in cash. "Given Zomato's recent valuation of $3.55 billion in the private markets, this would value the sale at roughly $355 million and ends a dark chapter for Uber Eats in India which has struggled to gain share vs. entrenched domestic competitors Zomato and Swiggy which together control roughly 80% of the food delivery market in India," Wedbush analysts Ygal Arounian and Daniel Ives wrote in a note to clients. They said that there are many markets in which Uber's management needs to determine whether it should exit due to the difficulties of becoming a market leader. Shares are up 12% over the past three months, as the S&P 500 has added 11%.
(Bloomberg) -- Uber Technologies Inc. will sell Uber Eats in India to local rival Zomato in a $172 million deal, according to a person familiar with the transaction, underscoring the ride-hailing giant’s effort to cut back on loss-making operations.Uber agreed to offload the business in return for 9.99% of the Indian startup, maintaining a foothold in one of the world’s fastest-growing internet arenas, the companies said in a statement. As part of the deal, the U.S. company will shutter operations but direct all restaurants, delivery companies and diners to Zomato. Neither company offered up financial details but the person said the value of the Zomato shares Uber gets is estimated at about $172 million. The Indian startup was last valued at $2.2 billion.The deal marks yet another leg in a wave of consolidation sweeping the food delivery sector. Uber, which is trading well below the price at its initial public offering, seeks to hive off money-losing businesses to achieve its goal of being profitable -- before taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization -- by 2021. While it will continue to vie with Ola -- also backed by SoftBank Group Corp. -- in ride-hailing, exiting the food business can help staunch bleeding in one of the most competitive markets in the region. SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son has impressed upon the companies within his massive portfolio the need to curtail excess and focus on the bottom line.“It is another proof point -- following our decision to exit Uber Eats South Korea in October 2019 -- of our commitment to take a hard look at Eats markets where we do not have a path to leadership,” said Nelson Chai, Uber’s chief financial officer, in a financial filing. “At least some of the investment that we would have otherwise made in India will now be redeployed to other countries we serve where we believe we have a clear path to No. 1 or No. 2.”Uber expects to see a gain of about $143 million, net of tax, as a result of the deal, according to the filing. The shares were up about 1.7% in premarket trading in New York Tuesday.Read more: Red-Hot Indian Online Food Arena Delivers its Second UnicornWhat Bloomberg Intelligence SaysUber’s sale of its Eats business in India makes sense, and echoes a similar step in South Korea as it cuts ties with unprofitable markets.
